Use Self-Compassion to Create Motivation

I know it seems like self-compassion is self-indulgence. We’ve been taught that being harsh with ourselves will make us change. However, it’s quite the opposite. When we ridicule ourselves, we bring down our self-esteem, and that affects our motivation. Self-Compassion doesn’t make you lazy. It’s been proven to be a motivation tool. It stops you from feeling defeated and not moving forward, it keeps you from being arrogant and not recognizing the issue, and it creates a growth mindset. ⁣

Use it today and every day in whatever work challenges you face and watch yourself make progress over time. ⁣
